Good morning Jeff. The California market is so different from ours, but that is nothing new. It was the same way back in the 70's! Thanks for the detailed update. Enjoy your day.

Wow, busy market in Carlsbad so far this year Jeff Dowler, CRS - Spanish style homes were always my favorite in south Orange county and North San Diego county. You are the one who knows Carlsbad and clients are lucky to have you help them.

At these price increases, I'll never be able to afford California! Homes in your area are so beautiful. And I can't think of a better location. 

Wishing you great prosperity for spring and summer sales.
